New stretch target

WE'RE SETTING A NEW TARGET!!

As a result of the incredibly generous donations received to date, and with the great news that the Club has been successful in its application to Sport England for a pledge of £1,500 toward our initial target of £5,000, and with a few weeks left to run on our Crowdfunder, we have decided to add a new 'stretch' target of £7,500!

We will use additional funds towards a specific project;  the refurbishment of the net practice area to include the repair/replacement of the nets, mattings and base. This will enable the club to provide a higher standard, and safer, practice facility for all players.

Thank you, again, to all who have donated, and all who will support the attainment of our new goal!

Testing Times

What a difficult year 2020 has been. In the end, the half season of league cricket achieved was more successful and enjoyable than looked possible in the depths of the first lockdown. We should be particularly proud of the opportunity offered to so many younger players to play, from All Stars for junior players new to cricket through to youth players participating in senior league cricket, grounds for real optimism next season and beyond.

Our Appeal

Financially, the year was pretty brutal. No subscription income; no Quiz Night; no Sponsorship income; no bar takings. As a result, we will have made a significant loss, even after a £1.5k grant secured from Sport England and reducing our costs to the bare minimum.  

We are therefore launching an Appeal to our members, parents, ex members, friends and contacts. Our target is £5,000 and in achieving this target we will ensure we enter 2021 in a sound financial position, are able to complete a number of important capex projects, and can invest in and promote our Youth section, the part of the club that suffered most from the lack of cricket in 2020.

How will we invest in our club

Donations received will be put to very good use. As a financially secure club we will be able to continue to develop our cricket offering to the community. This will include;

  • Growing our All Stars capability, including the provision of coaches to supplement our own volunteers
  • Investing in new protective gear and coaching aids for our junior players
  • Improved playing facilities e.g. new boundary rope to safely mark the playing area on match days 

Thank you

We won’t succeed without your help. If the majority of members and parents could donate £20 we will go a long way to achieving our target, but please don't let that be the limit of your generosity should you wish to donate a larger sum! Please donate whatever you can to ensure the future for our wonderful club.
